Whats a Giclee Print?
'Giclee' pronounced 'Zhee'clay' comes from the French meaning to spray or squirt. They are produced on archival substrates with professional 8-12-color ink jet printers, 1400 to 1800 dpi (dots per inch). Giclee prints are recognized as the most accurate printing technique and are 98% true to the original artwork. The materials and inks used in these prints are archival and of the finest quality and meet the standards set forth by the Fine Art Trade Guild for PH and Light-Fastness. Each print is printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper which is 100% Cotton and is lignin and acid free and meets the highest industry standards for density, color gamut, color graduation, and image sharpness. Unlike digital prints, Giclee prints, under the proper care, can last you 75 years or more without fading and appreciates in value. All prints are limited edition and come numbered and signed with a certificate of authenticity.
To ensure the longevity of your Giclee print, it is recommended to follow these guidelines:
Always handle with clean, washed hands. Any oils from your skin could transfer to the paper and cause blemishing.
When matting and framing your print, use acid free materials. Acid from low quality materials will transfer to the print and cause yellowing over time.
Keep out of direct sunlight. Even though these prints are light-fast and fade resistant, direct sunlight is a powerful thing and could cause unwanted fading.
Select quality glass when framing. UV protective glass is be the optimal choice as it will help filter any harmful rays that could damage your print.
